    A Massachusetts woman was killed in a head-on crash Thursday afternoon, state police said.

    A trooper responded to the scene of the crash on Old Turnpike Road in Oakham, where the trooper found that a 21-year-old Franklin man who had been driving a 2014 Toyota Corolla had apparently lost control of his car and hit a 2015 Honda CRV that had been traveling in the opposite direction.

    The crash killed a passenger in Corolla, who has only been identified as a 21-year-old woman from New Bedford.

    The 51-year-old woman who was driving the Honda and her passenger, an 81-year-old man, were taken by an ambulance to UMass Worcester with serious injuries. The driver of the Toyota was also taken to the same hospital with serious injuries.
